Archie Parnell Runs for Congress (4/15/17)

DOJ Tax Alum, Archie Parnell, is running for Congress in South Carolina.  See Avery G. Wilks and Cassie Cope, Sumter Democrat to enter 5th District race (The State 3/1/17), here.  His career since DOJ Tax has included stints with Exxon and Goldman Sachs.  Now he is back in his home town of Sumter and running for Congress as an outsider, a Democrat, and a novice politician (but being from South Carolina also, I am sure he is a good ole boy!).  The mayor of Sumter is quote as saying:  "He's the smartest candidate."  I'm sure we all wish him the best.

Here is his web site:
